The package arrived packed in dry ice. The design on each item in this box is beautifully done. There were three sheets inside of a black envelope, one telling me how to blend my smoothie (you’ll need to provide your own liquid base, but they give you recommendations), a welcome note, and a sheet of magnets.
Love these fridge magnets!
On to the smoothies:
Mango + Papaya
This smoothie includes Organic Mango, Papaya, Organic Acerola Cherry, Organic Pineapple, and Macadamia Nut. The recommended blending liquid for this one was coconut water for nice light taste. I wanted a more filling smoothie so I used unsweetened coconut milk and it was lovely. The light, summery, tropical taste of this smoothie was very refreshing.
Here’s what the ingredients look like before blending.
Strawberry + Peach
You really can’t go wrong with strawberry and peach together. In addition to organic strawberry and organic peach, this blend includes all organic: banana, raspberry, goji berry, gluten-free oats, and flax seeds. The oats and flax seeds made this more filling and perfect for breakfast. I blended the frozen fruit with unsweetened vanilla coconut milk which worked so well for a strawberry + peaches + cream effect. Yum. I think this is the kind of smoothie everyone would like.

Pineapple + Matcha
Organic pineapple helps sweeten the taste of the organic kale, organic coconut, lime, Japanese matcha green tea, and vanilla bean in this smoothie. I blended it with coconut water for a lighter taste. I could definitely taste the matcha in this smoothie and it was a nice unexpected flavor compared to other green smoothies I’ve had. This smoothie probably isn’t for pickier eaters but if you’re into creative flavor pairings, you’ll like this.
Acai + Cherry
This smoothie was delicious. I love cherries and I like to get greens where I can. The Acai + Cherry blend has organic cherry, organic blueberry, organic banana, organic kale, organic raspberry, and organic acai berry. I blended this with unsweetened coconut milk and it was my favorite in the box.
Cherries, raspberries, and a little bit of kale!
Watermelon + Cucumber
This was a super light, hydrating smoothie with water-based fruits watermelon and cucumber. In addition to watermelon and organic cucumber, this smoothie had organic raspberry, organic seabuckthorn, organic coconut water, chia seed, and lime. I have to admit that watermelon and cucumber are not favorites of mine so this smoothie was a miss for me. I think this would be a great summery smoothie for anyone into watermelon and cucumber.
Lots of ice on the watermelon.
Blueberry + Hemp
This is the only smoothie in the Fresh & Fruity box that included a protein powder. I could definitely taste the hemp powder and noticed a slightly gritty texture. In addition to the hemp protein, this smoothie contains organic blueberries, organic spinach, organic kale, raw walnuts, golden figs, and organic ginger. When tasting this smoothie, each flavor came through on it’s own and I definitely noticed the ginger followed by the hemp protein at the end. This wasn’t a favorite but I appreciated the complex and new flavors.
So many blueberries.
Verdict: These are not cheap smoothies, but the service is more for the convenience and the quality of the ingredients. My husband and I drink smoothies for breakfast every morning and often for lunch as well, so this is perfect for us. I like that the cups that the ingredients come in can be used to drink out of as well – the black plastic lids have a pre-scored area for a straw to fit through. I recommend this for anyone stuck in a smoothie rut and interested in trying some unexpected and thoughtful flavor combinations with top-notch ingredients. I’m excited to try the Rich & Filling box next!
